Maximize your trip

If you plan on attending our wedding in South Africa, we recommend extending your stay and turning it into a memorable vacation. The journey to South Africa is especially far for some guests, so taking advantage of your time in this incredible country is worth considering. With its diverse landscapes, rich culture, and fascinating history, South Africa offers plenty of opportunities for exploration and adventure.

Travel Info

Flying to Cape Town (CPT)

The most convenient airport to fly into for the wedding is Cape Town International Airport (CPT). However, if you fly into Johannesburg (JNB), there are plenty of quick flight options within South Africa that can take you to Cape Town.

 

To get to Cape Town, you have to fly into Cape Town International Airport. There are regular flights from London Heathrow/London Gatwick/Frankfurt/Dubai. 

​Flying to Johannesburg  (JNB)

If you plan on doing a safari in the Krueger park, we recommend flying to Johannesburg, and you can then take a domestic flight to Cape Town. You can also fly into Joburg, and take a domestic flight to Cape Town. 

​Popular Stop Overs

From the United States, there are several direct flight options to Cape Town (CPT). United Airlines offers direct flights from Newark (EWR) and Washington DC (IAD) to Cape Town (CPT). Delta Airlines also offers direct flights from Atlanta (ATL) to Cape Town (CPT), or you can fly from Atlanta (ATL) to Johannesburg (JNB) and then connect to Cape Town (CPT) on the Delta triangular route.

 

In addition, there are other flight options through the United Kingdom on Virgin or British Airways, through Europe via Amsterdam (KLM), Paris (Air France), or Frankfurt (Lufthansa), or the Middle East on Emirates, Etihad, or Qatar. 

Passport Requirements

A passport with 30 days validity is required with two empty pages for entry stamp. If you don't have two blank pages on your passport, you will not be allowed to enter South Africa.

Transportation

We recommend using uber/uber black. Alternatively you can pre-order a private pickup directly to Cape Town or Stellenbosch. The companies below offer shuttles from the airport to both Cape Town and Stellenbosch directly:

Citishuttles 

Morkel Shuttle

Feel free to also work with Tracey Cronje for booking reservations in advance of your trip: tracey@eventassist.co.za

Acccomodations

The day of the wedding will be in Stellenbosch. You may want to spend a few days there, as there is so much to explore & experience, and to be closer to the venue. Alternatively, you may want to stay in Cape Town the duration of your trip. Cape Town is about a 25-45 min drive, away depending on traffic. As our wedding is in January (Summer in South Africa), Cape Town & Stellenbosch are popular destination and hotels will fill up fast.

 

We recommend booking your accommodation as soon as possible, since rooms fill up well in advance.

 

Cape Town Accommodations

For those who wish to spend the duration of your trip in Cape Town, here are some recommended hotels

5-Star (Luxury)

More Affordable

Airbnb - More Affordable

Airbnb has several great options, with reasonable price points to consider.  Booking the first week of Jan is also better pricing, since high-season is around christmas. The best areas to stay in Cape Town are Sea Point, The V&A Waterfront,  Kloof St, & Green Point. These areas are very walkable. 

We've created a wish list of some good options, though they may get booked up, so anything like these are great options:
